Why don't you cover bicycling and William and Mary football

Saturday, October 9, 2010; A13

Washington has become a strong bicycling town. Bicycling is a sport, a form of recreation, a means of commuting. The number of people commuting is considerable. Scenic bike trails and on-road bike lanes are well-used.

Yet The Post's Sports section virtually ignores the sport beyond the Tour de France in July. There was little or no coverage of the third most famous race -- the Vuelta a España (Tour of Spain) -- last month or the Road World Championships, held in Melbourne, Australia, last week.

Unbelievable. I wrote last year when your football article about the University of Virginia losing to William and Mary devoted little space to the Tribe's winning effort [Free for All, Nov. 21].

Now seventh-ranked William and Mary beats top-ranked Villanova in what is now the Football Championship Subdivision on Oct. 2, and you don't write about it. Why? William and Mary is closer than Virginia Tech and has a better record as well.

Reid Williamson,
